    Community Tribalism, from the perspective of a Campfire Text RPer

    I agree with you fully on that "text RP is, overall, a better way to RP". I still Text-RP on Garry's Mod to this very day. The creativity and potential via text is unlimited on scripts and games that actually support that type of roleplay. My argument mainly lies that DayZRP just isn't the place for it. I'm very curious to see how you Text-RP and perhaps we'll run into each other soon. Emotion is always a tricky one and still, after all these years, I still find it hard to portray it properly - especially with torture RP.

    Community Tribalism, from the perspective of a Campfire Text RPer

    I just finished reading through this post in its entirety and I'm still digesting it for the most part. Below I'll share some thoughts. Tribalism Everything you said about the "us versus them" problem is true. Whether it's natural or artificial is up for debate. Regardless, it's our responsibility as writers, actors and story-tellers to make sure that this distance between different types of roleplayers is lessened. Your Responsibility Toward Enjoyment The point you made about how people ought to ensure that the other party enjoys the roleplay is something I wholeheartedly agree with. Roleplay is a form of improvisation, and when doing improv in groups, all parties must build off each other's actions. Avoiding a brick-wall is the goal, and keeping the flow going is the method. In order to keep the flow going, you have to offer sufficient stimuli to guarantee that the opposite party can continue the "act" or in our case the "roleplay". For example, a hostage situation. Party A, the hostage, responds to the actions of Party B with vigour and engagement, enabling B to respond with the same amount of engagement. This wouldn't be possible if Party A just sat there and went "screw this" and offered the most lacklustre responses possible. The same goes vice-versa. Roleplay is a collaborative experience, and we all share a responsibility towards enjoyment. Text RP? There is nothing inherently wrong with Text-RP in theory. Coming from a long history of Garry's Mod and World of Warcraft Text-RP, I can understand fully the appeal of Text-RP. It enables you to explore a character that you perhaps couldn't have acted through your voice alone. Personally, I roleplay with a mix. I always say what Roma says over VOIP, but when it comes to actions - smoking a cigarette, searching someone's pockets or running a hand through his hair - it goes through text. The problem with Text-RPers arises when there is a high-stakes situation or a fast-paced situation and they're not able to convey their characters in appropriate time. Furthermore, to properly Text-RP a level of writing skill comes into play which includes the use of descriptive words and being able to type in a pace that can keep up with people who use VOIP to roleplay. You seemed to raise one of my issues about Text-RP in a different context in your post, too:  This largely isn't possible with Text-RPers. Sure, you can through in a ** Johnny speaks with a shaky voice, or a ** Jacky looked down as he spoke. But with most of my encounters with Text-RPers, descriptive emotes such as those are just not present. Voice will always trump text in portraying emotion in DayZRP. This isn't only due to one's inability due to pacing, but it is also due to the limitations of DayZ. It doesn't really support "text" as a valid form of communication. The character limit is laughably small, and the size of the text-box requires players to literally squint to read it properly. The absence of a /me or a /it command is disappointing, too. I'd like to mention one more thing: the use of "camp-fire roleplay" is outdated and doesn't account for the roleplay that occurs in most "camp-fire roleplay" circles. I find that "passive-RP" is a much more suitable term, as it describes roleplay that doesn't involve hostile action whilst avoiding conjuring up images of a group of people sitting near debug cooking wolf steak and telling the same generic backstories. I'll post more/edit this post if I come up with more additions or points. Thank-you for opening this discussion in a concise and calm manner. Other threads haven't been so kind.

    DayZRP Staff Agreement

    I, Xavier hereby agree to follow the DayZRP Staff Agreement Version 4 in its current form.
  9. Jonas Skalova was born to an extremely improvised family in an apartment block in Novaya Petrovka. His father was a dead-beat and owed the wrong people money -- his mother, a common street prostitute. Jonas didn't receive the education he needed and took up street work to make ends meet. For obvious reasons, such as domestic abuse and general hatred, Jonas refused to offer any of his street money to his father and only provided the basics to the household - bread and water. When Jonas' father was beaten to death after failing to meet a debt payment, Jonas' mother sent him to live with his aunt in Sinistok, up north. Sinistok was a town that bled green and yellow. The few amount of Russians that lived there were only ethnically so, as practicing Russian cultural tradition was surely a death trap in Sinistok. At the height of racial tension in late 2008 and early 2009, Jonas fell in with the local Stonemen, a group of militants with a bone to pick with society. Aged 16, pimple-faced Jonas killed his first man, a known Chedaki sympathizer in Tisy during a brawl with a shiv. It shattered his world, and he only did it to fit in. The ideology was never important for him, but having an accepting family was. The Civil War was bloody for Jonas, and afterwards he lived a life in seclusion, hiding from any vengeful souls or government lawyers in the woods around. The re-emergence of the Stonemen during the Apocalypse offered a chance for Jonas to reunite with his lost brothers.

    Radio message to John Moody

    A cocky Russian replies: "What if I were in America, calling every American who talked on the radio a fascist! It wouldn't be true. It's strange how you seem to know the affiliation of every local talking on the radio."

    Whose roleplay did you enjoy today?

    Today was extremely enjoyable. I'd like to thank @Major and his BPR boys for the hostage exchange. @Finn for his superb hostage roleplay. The Green Dragons for some entertaining interactions (and a drug deal). @Sylva and his group of little green men for uh, being super loud. ... and of course, all my Free Territory dudes.
